(NEW ENGLAND CABLE NEWS) More than 100 people brawled on a Massachusetts beach Sunday evening in a melee that saw bottles and rocks hurled, some at police, and at least 12 people arrested.

The fight broke out near the bandstand on Revere Beach soon before 6:15 p.m. when two girls or women began fighting, Mayor Dan Rizzo said. Their boyfriends joined in, and then their boyfriends’ friends, and it kept growing from there, he said.

Bottles and rocks were thrown during the fight, including some at police officers.
